Which one is right? "None were hurt" or "None was hurt" ?


The statement was "None were hurt". Someone said that the word "none" is a portmanteau of "no" and "one"; and that since you wouldn't say "no one were hurt", you shouldn't say "None were hurt". Apparently it should be "None was hurt." ? Is this true?
